Defense Lawyer Handling Theft Crimes
Theft Crime Charges
Theft is a common crime in Florida and in the Miami area, with an increase in the last few years. Theft is the taking of something belonging to another without their knowledge or consent. Theft can occur in many ways, by stealing something out of a person's vehicle or breaking into someone's home to steal something. When a theft is committed with the use of a weapon, it becomes a much more serious crime, normally charged as a felony. Certain common theft crimes our office can defend you for include:
- Petty Theft
- Grand Theft
- Grand Theft Auto
- Armed Robbery
